Would I be delighted to receive this for my child?” This is the question to ask when looking to rehome your kids’ preloved goodies.
Items that are worn-out, broken, stained or damaged may be discarded.
We value every donation but sometimes we cannot re-home some items for a variety of reasons. When we cannot re-home an item we may on-donate to another children’s charity or selected Op Shops who support similar work. Sometimes we may sell items that we cannot use at fairs or market days in which case all funds raised are used for local families in need.
Please let us know if you do not wish items that you donate to be on-donated or used for We Care fundraising when they cannot be re-homed by us.
Please only donate new or excellent condition clothing that will delight.
